Martin – AKA “The scalability coach” – is a British visionary and a complete guru when it comes to helping businesses earn huge bucks, whether they’re start-ups or corporate giants. He went from being a small time entrepreneur, to SME business owner, to senior executive in just ten years. He became the CEO of an organisation that was losing a quarter of a £million a year and built it up to a £160 million a year money-maker. And if you’re not impressed yet, he’s also the author of the #1 Amazon Bestselling book, I Don’t Work Fridays.
By utilising his very own, unique SCALE model, Martin helps business owners who are stuck to effectively sack themselves through transforming their businesses and making them more fun and valuable. As Martin says, it’s all about empowering the business owner to make their own choices about what they’re doing and where they want to be going.
